Polis Calls on Congress to End Marijuana Prohibition

Speaking alongside industry advocates, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) called Wednesday for Congress to end the prohibition on marijuana, stressing the need to reduce drug violence while hailing the medical cannabis market's capacity for growing the economy. "Ending the failed policy of prohibition with regard to marijuana will strike a major blow against the criminal cartels that are terrorizing Americans and Mexicans on both sides of the border," Polis said at the National Press Club, in response to a question from Raw Story. "It's been estimated that the drug cartels drive about half of ...

Jared Polis has ideas for closing federal budget gap

Although the so-called Gang of Six's proposalfor averting debt-ceiling catastrophe is getting the lion's share of attention right now, Representative Jared Polis has floated some revenue-raising ideas of his own, which the media has largely winnowed down to this: Legalizing marijuana would help close the budget gap. But if that shortchanges some of his other notions, Polis's spokesman isn't complaining. "You can't really blame the media for focusing on a controversial issue when you raise a controversial issue," says Polis communications director Chris Fitzgerald. "If it brings attention to ...

Polis Comments on New EPA Carbon Rule
Representative Jared Polis (CO-02) today made the following comments in response to the new carbon pollution rules proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency: “The dangerous and costly effects of climate change are already upon us. Over the past few years Colorado has experienced record heat, drought, historic flooding, and destructive wildfires.  If we want to slow the impact of climate change, we must start curbing carbon pollution now. “Colorado is leading the nation’s transition to a clean-energy future by passing a strong renewable energy portfolio standard that has, and will continue to significantly cut our state’s carbon pollution. Since the House Majority leadership won’t act, I applaud the administration and the EPA for taking action and proposing robust carbon pollution standards for existing power plants.”
Polis Comments on 2014 Pride Month
Representative Jared Polis (CO-02) today made the following statement recognizing Pride month: The 2014 Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month offers us the opportunity to reflect upon an unprecedented number of victories for the equality movement over the past year. From last June’s historic Supreme Court decision in Windsor that paved the way for all couples to receive equal recognition under federal law, to the six states that began granting same-sex marriage licenses for the first time, the march toward LGBT equality has never looked as promising as it does today. Across the country, public opinion is rapidly shifting away from prejudice and injustice, and toward freedom and acceptance.  Court systems in state after state are recognizing that government-sanctioned bigotry has no place in our society, as they strike down discriminatory marriage bans. Though the progress over the past year has been significant, the road to equality and justice for all is not ye
Polis Lauds Executive Order Banning LGBT Discrimination by Federal Contractors
Representative Jared Polis (CO-02) today made the following statement after President Barack Obama issued an executive order banning contractors from receiving federal government contracts unless they have a policy prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Polis has led a number of letters to the President calling for this move, most recently joining Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) in March on a bicameral letter signed by 130 Members of Congress. “Today’s executive order is an important step in ending workplace discrimination against LGBT employees.  I commend the President for his strong leadership.  This action has sent a message to not only federal contractors, but employers everywhere that our nation is one where every man and woman deserves the right to be judged by the quality of their work, not who they are or who they love.” “While I applaud the President for taking this bold step, it also reminds us that our work on bringing eq
Polis Comments on President’s Student Loan Announcement
Representative Jared Polis (CO-02) today made the following statement after President Obama announced changes to the federal student loan program: “I am encouraged that President Obama has recognized the need to alleviate the overwhelming burden of student debt carried by so many people in Colorado and across the nation. While extending relief to more Americans is a step in the right direction, only legislation can simplify and streamline our complicated student loan system. I am proud to co-lead the bipartisan ExCEL Act, which would create affordable payment plans, with automatic paycheck deductions for all students, and extend protections for borrowers in times of financial stress. I urge my colleagues to pass this legislation and make higher education more affordable and accessible for all Americans."
